Hey guys, I took my pooch into the vet yesterday for a little kennel cough that he got at the dog park. While i was there i asked for an estimate to get his hips and elbows OFA ed. So they give me this estimate of $560-$620. I thought that this was a little high, but i realize that the vet i go to is always a little higher than other places, but i don't care, i like the care and advice that i get from them.
So last night at my skeet league shoot, I asked some friends of mine who train and breed, where they get there OFA tests done. They gave me a name of a vet. I called them this morning and got a quote over the phone. $208, and i will talk to the on site OFA certified x ray tech the very same day and get the results.
Now this other vet clinic is a 1.5 hr drive one way. so it is out of the way. but it will be well worth it. If it was a hundred dollar difference i wouldn't probably drive that far.
So now i wonder how much i am getting ripped off from my vet. :pissed: We take 3 cats and a dog in there and i am thinking of getting another dog. If i give them an extra $50 or $100 a frikin animal I would be getting hosed. :pissed:
So i will start to look around a little bit. Just wanted to share. I think some people wouldn't get their dogs hips tested if the cost was that much money, and instead just go ahead and bread there dog without the OFA.
.....you've got to ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?
